What's New in Lake George
The beautiful Moose Hillock Campground of Fort Ann, NY, is now open! With high quality facilities, endless recreational activities, and nearby attractions, you'll fall in love with this vacation site!
Adirondack Winery recently announced that they will be expanding state-wide! On June 1st, the NY-based winery launched its portfolio of wines with Opici Family Distributing with the hopes to have Adirondack Winery wines sold at wine and liquor stores, restaurants, hotels and bars, across New York State.
When I heard the Surfside in Lake George was opening a Roofttop Cabana Bar I absolutely had to check it out. What better way to spend a vacation than relaxing by an outdoor bar, sipping a frozen drink, and taking in the beautiful view? The only problem is- "Cabana Bar" can mean a lot of things; I have seen everything from a dirty carpet outside a rundown building where people are drinking beers (Cabana Bar?) to a luxurious outside paradise where people in bathing suits sip on cocktails. I had no idea what to expect at the Surfside but I can tell you I was very impressed.

Thumbnail image for Warrensburgh Farmer's Market.jpgIt's finally farmers market season! Opening Day for the 16th season of the Warrensburgh Riverfront Farmers' Market is Friday, May 23 (Memorial Day Weekend) from 3-6 p.m.

The market is held Friday afternoons from 3-6 p.m., June through October, on the banks of the scenic Schroon River in the Warrensburgh Mills Historic District, on River Street (Route 418) near Curtis Lumber.

The market is a "producer-only" market, limiting sales to locally grown produce, wine, baked goods, preserves, maple syrup, honey, dairy, poultry, meats, plants, soaps and lotions, and more. All prepared foods are made "from scratch", utilizing locally grown ingredients whenever possible.

In addition to the weekly farmers market there will also be themed monthly festivals to attend!
In case you haven't heard, our Best of Lake George public opinion survey is open through the end of April for voting. This is the only survey of its kind here in Lake George, so this is the one that counts. Here are 3 good reasons why you should vote.
I was a little skeptical about attending the Rachael Ray show; I have always had this thing about celebrities and the way they act once they "hit it big." I think that sometimes people forget where they came from and I was afraid Rachael might have that very attitude. I am happy to report that I am BEYOND pleasantly surprised after attending Rachael Ray's Annual Benefit Show; this celebrity chef is not only true to her roots but she acts as if she is just another face in the crowd. 

Rachael Ray has helped LGHS raise over $150,000 for the Alumni Association/special programs and has helped raise awareness for animals and children in need with her "YUM-O" and "Nutrish" charities.
